+ - OpenBSD, David Maynor smacked down at BlackHat->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The winners of the 2007 Pwnie Awards were announced during an award ceremony at the Black Hat USA security conference last night. David Maynor received the award for Most Overhyped Bug for the media frenzy surrounding the Apple Wi-Fi vulnerabilities he presented an year ago at BlackHat. The OpenBSD project received the Lamest Vendor Response award for spectacularly mishandling a remotely exploitable kernel vulnerability in their IPv6 stack. For a complete list of the winners and nominees, see the Pwnie Awards site."
